Under the present depressed market sentiment’s where shares prices have nosed dived, the delegation suggested that the proposed draft of Listed Companies (Buy Back of Shares) Regulations, 2019, be approved on priority and the limit of 10% on treasury shares should be enhanced.

The delegation also proposed to resolve the present issue of ready futures transaction at PSX which is also hurting the market volumes.

It was also recommended that keeping in view the attractive valuations at the PSX, the NIT State Enterprise Fund which was created in 2009 for market support should be reactivated on the same lines. Since the Fund still exists, it would not take long to be activated.
